Favorite Finds: Meagan's Chest of Drawers

Today's Favorite Find comes from Meagan of Spunky Chateau. Meagan and I connected over her weekly link party and found out we have a lot of "places" in common. Meagan currently lives outside of Louisville, where I grew up, and has family in Atlanta and drives through Nashville often and stops and shops! And I am often in Atlanta for work! We bonded over giving each other tips on where to shop! :) Check out Meagan's blog to see all the great clothes and accessories she thrifts!

Below, Meagan shares her favorite find!

What is your favorite find and where did you find it?

My favorite find is a 1940s waterfall chest of drawers. I found it at a local Goodwill
last fall.

Had you been looking for a new chest of drawers or did you have to make room for it?

After starting my blog, I started to notice that I was experiencing a bit of an overflow of clothes from my closet and was looking for another storage option. I searched a local Goodwill one day and didn't see anything. Then, just when I was leaving, I spied one of the vintage glass handles on the drawers peeking out from behind another piece of furniture. I pushed it aside and knew without a doubt the chest of drawers was coming home with me.

Why do you love buying secondhand?

I love buying secondhand for so many reasons! First, I love buying unique things that no one else has. I'm also a bit of a history nerd so I love history and stories that secondhand items have.

What else should we know about your love of thrifting? :)

I've been thrifting for most of my life. It's something I feel really strongly about. If you take the time to look, and use your imagination, you can open up a whole new world of possibilities for yourself and your style. I think that seeing people use thrifted items is so inspiring and every Thursday I host a link up on my blog where people can show off their thrifted finds. I never fail to be amazed at what people discover!

Thank you for sharing, Meagan! If you have a favorite find, email me!
